Merry Bay Eggs

 Easter brunches with big Burrito

April 21, 2019

What do Easter and brunch have in common? Eggs, of course. You could even say eggs are the yoke that ties the two together. Casbah, Eleven and Kaya will crack shells aplenty and poach for your brunch or dinner reservations on Easter. Soba, Umi and all Mad Mex locations are closed for the holiday.

 Alta Via is open!

Seven nights a week

big Burrito big Chef Bill Fuller has been basically living at 46 Fox Chapel Road, only slipping out long enough to visit the Pittsburgh Today Live kitchen and demo two dishes from the opening menu, which we also previewed in the March issue of Eat.big.

PTL's Heather Abraham returned the call by dropping by Alta Via during mock service to sample a few items and even try her hand at making some fresh pasta ("So it's kinda like Play-Doh. I hate Play-Doh!").

If you missed these recipes last month, download them from the links below, and see you at Alta Via soon!

Mad Mex

Pizza Boy Brewing Co.

April 23-May 7, unless we run out

Mad Mex is featuring Pizza Boy Brewing Co. for the first time. Established in Enola, PA (just across the Susquehanna from Harrisburg) by owner Al Kominski in the basement of his namesake restaurant, Pizza Boy has expanded three times in the past few years, riding a wave of sours like mango-blasted Alphonso and experimental barrel-aged brews.

Exclusive to Mad Mex and new to the world, It's A Mad, Mad, Mad Mex IPA will be a hazy IPA double dry hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic and Falconers' Flight blend of C hops. What does it taste like? We don't know, it's still in the conditioning tank. But we're sure it'll be awesome, and around 7% ABV. We'll also tap Magic Under Where IPA, serving them in big 22oz drafts for just $5 all day.


Celebration of Spring Tasting Menu

April 8-14

In the next seasonal menu at Eleven, fresh ingredients bring the spring to the headline acts. There's white asparagus in the Lamb Carpaccio, creamed morels and pickled ramps in the Wild Alaskan Halibut, and rhubarb in the Spring Onion Risotto. See the detailed menu here, reservations are recommended.


Night Market Menu at Soba

April 8-13

Our Dim Sum menu for Chinese New Year was so well received that we're bringing the pencils back for Songkran, Thailand's New Year celebration. Choose from dozens of Thai street food dishes, including crispy tofu lettuce wraps, penang mussels with red curry lobster broth, Bangkok cellophane noodles with shrimp and much more. See a preview of the menu here. Pro-tip: wait until you've turned in your menu sheet before throwing water on your companions.
